In the intro a heads up that there will be no news cast this weekend. And a bit of a mini rant and news discussion of the announcement of the awarding of a patent for podcasting. Dave Winer's blog, not surprisingly, has the details as well as a pretty strong claim that he has prior art.
Listener Feedback this week comes from Randal Schwartz who adds some good explanation to my coverage of the OSFA announcement for the last news cast. Randal also points out an organization with which he works, LinuxFund, is a member of OSFA and worth your consideration for causes to help.
